The Weeknd released an emotionally-charged EP titled "My Dear Melancholy" just last week and all six songs have already dominated the music charts. 

Now, he's gifting us a video for "Call Out My Name," a song reportedly addressing his split with Selena Gomez. 

Given the inspiration, fans expected the clip to be jam-packed with signs much like Taylor Swift's videos when she sings about exes or takes jabs at her enemies. 

However, the video simply shows Abel wandering on a deserted street.When he reaches the chorus, a flock of bats erupt from his mouth. 

It's definitely a sickening visual; other oddities in the video include forest animals and some white, demonic looking alien-girl. 

One theory making its rounds is that the video draws inspo from his other video "The Birds."

In that song, Abel talks about how he broke a girls heart. I guess this is his way of serving himself some karma?
